I match make a few letters Butter them with emotions Soft,calm,soothing ink Penning down feelings with mystique Then I watch their hearts melt Succumbing to love, through words. Black,dark,grey...night. Blood,red,thick...bleed I Cris cross the letters Hunt their sanity ghastly Murder them with scary letters A concoction of fear filled words Late,dead,graves... Shush! Horror won't seem so cool I prey on their dreams Rule their nightmares Keeping their souls awake Yet their eyes dead I scare the hell out of them,using words. So, sit, relax, fasten your seat belts and read I took my words to a bar One shot, two shots, three shots... Four They got drunk, crazy dipsomaniacs So my letters are unstable Now, these words are drunk and unpredictable. Cheers
